AMES, Iowa (CC) - In an amazing show of dedication to and solidarity with Donald Trump, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a federal holiday, Christians, conservatives and Republican voters in Iowa braved the bitter cold and confirmed that Trump is, by a landslide, king of conservative candidates this presidential election year and their choice to lead the GOP's return to the White House.


After winning 53% of the votes, according to CNN as of this writing, Mr. Trump gets the lions share of the 40 party delegates available from Iowa, the Hawkeye State.


Ron DeSantis won 22%. Nikki Haley gathered 20% of the votes. Vivek Ramaswamy suspended his 2024 campaign and endorsed Donald Trump.


Fox News projected Trump as the winner, going way, very soon after polls closed.


"I feel great," Trump told Fox News Digital. "I am greatly honored by such an early call."


Mr. Trump has sometimes been at odds with the traditionally conservative cable news channel ratings leader, over his views concerning the 2020 "stolen election."


Haley, DeSantis, Ramaswamy and others competed on the Iowa ballot against Trump to eventually be selected as the Republican presidential nominee in 2024. Tim Scott dropped from the competition in November 2023. Chris Christie ended his own campaign last week.


In Iowa this week, DeSantis and Haley battled for honorable second place.


"It really is an honor that, minutes after, they’ve announced I’ve won—against very credible competition—great competition, actually," Trump said. "It is a tremendous thing and a tremendous feeling."


Vowing to "make America great again," the slogan that spurred him to victory in the 2016 election, Trump added, "We have to get our country back. Our country has gone through so many bad things over the last three years and it is continuing to go through bad things."


After keeping a somber but determined attitude and vigil for the last three years, Christians and conservatives reacted with joy and optimism that Trump, now officially solidified as the front runner in what some analysts view as a lukewarm and fruitless field of challengers, will be reinstalled as US President.


He is the obvious choice for a constellation of conservative organizations. Many of them still, and will always believe that the 2020 election was stolen from him. They have watched as their hero has been put through a gauntlet of unsuccessful challenges from the justice system over the years, they say, designed to illegally keep him off of the ballot in November 2024.


Tonight, they feel like justice has been served by the people.


All of the major polls predicted that Mr. Trump would romp to victory in what is traditionally the nation's first primary contest. Iowa's swarm of Republican voters did not let him down.
